Madras




pink plaid

I am exploring madras, in my plates, layering glazes, crossing stripes, like that. In the process, I am finding out more about Madras, India and the textile itself. I have just started the anthropological exploration but my aesthetic journey is well under way.

Love the Madras, I used to wear it when I was in 5th grade. My Mom made lots of my jumpers and peddlepushers....

Beautiful. I just bought five pairs of Madras shorts. I would love, if you would be so kind, to hear a step by step of your creative process. I don't want you to feel like you have to give any of your secrets away, though. *smile*

Thank you for the wonderful comments. I will write about the "how to" next week. Layering color in ceramics is amazing! :-)
